Looking into getting either a Super Hawg(single stack) or Springfield Loaded Longslide, looking for any input on one or the other.
SA, hands down.
SA: usgi profile, less plastic/MIM, more consistent customer service, far better build quality, and should you want to trade it you don't lose 50%+ of the resale value pricing the weapon to sell.
I very recently looked at both and bought the fat body Super Hawg, against my better judgement (at the time). Although I mostly hear woe about the Para, I went ahead and bought the thing, through my dealer's distributer, so I got a good deal.
I went and shot mine, first with Fed AE Ball, and experianced a fail to feed somewhere around the 2nd magazine, 3rd round. I nudged it up the feed ramp, noting that I thought MAY BE the breech face needed a light polish, and/or a quick look at the extractor claw groove bevel. I returned to the range another day, and ran mixed mags of factory ball , other 200 gr SWCs, 230 gr LRN & Golden Sabres (185s). All, I repeat ALL, fed, extracted and ejected properly, and even with a 7.7 lb trigger, it actually shot well (I am beginning to really like a Bomar type rear with a narrow, fiber optic front post for shooting).
Now, I admit, two brief range trips is not a long term releationship, nor grounds to be considered much of a review, I like this gun, am going to clean up the trigger and just shoot the crap outta it, if the slide don't crumble range trip after next
For now, I'm glad I bought this thing.
I also have a SA 80's vintage 1911, slightly tricked out that I love (and I mean LOVE), it's gotten me 18 of the 26 LEG points that I have right now, and is a winning gun at local matches, IF I don't poo my britches and just shoot... Anyhow, so don't go thinking I'm a SA hater. (SA makes a good 1911, I would replace my current one with another if (when) it finally craps out.
